4.2. Design individual e-tivity and publish on forum
Your task in this module is to design an e-tivity. As a result of Activities 4.1 you have already designed a learning outcome, results and listed learner actions.
Now it is time to design the rest of the e-tivity. Before starting, however, bear in mind that you are designing for vocational context and think whether there are any specificities of your vocational area that need to be taken into consideration when designing e-tivities?
You can use this template for creating your own e-tivity.
- Read the comments about your work provided by the other participants and take them into account if you consider them useful.
- Remember the 5 crucial ingredients of e-tivity and the e-tivity table. Now create the same table and fill it in - this is for you as a designer to make sure that all the important elements of e-tivity are covered.
- Write down instructions for participants for your e-tivity (this is the text of activity such as the one you are reading right now).
You may find the following example useful in planning your own e-tivity:
|Name of e-tivity||E-workshop creating formula for a face cream|
After this activity, students will be able to:
|Results||Creating a formula for a face cream for your skin type.|
|Number of participants||From 12 to 20 students.|
|Structure (what will happen in e-tivity)||
|Duration (the time that passes between the beginning and the end of an e-tivity)||From 3 to 7 days.|
|Time for the facilitator (the amount of work hours which they have to invest)||4 hours for preparing materials and presentations, 2 hours to see the results.|
|Participant workload (the amount of work hours which they have to invest)||3 hours.|
|Participant’s actions (specific actions performed by a participant)||
|Tool used in this e-tivity||PowerPoint, YouTube, Excel, Padlet.|
|Methods and criteria of evaluation||The process of evaluation is carried out through reviewing the posts with recipes published on Padlet. The task is finished when the recipe is properly designed. Interpersonal communication is encouraged through product comparisons.|
Publish the table and the instructions for e-tivity on Discussion Forum of Module 4.
